above the earth. traveling about five miles per second. but slow down. nasa says there is absolutely no danger. >> it's not going to cause earthquakes, it's not going to cause any climate change. >> reporter: da14 was first discovered by amateur astronomers last february in spain. since then, nasa has been plotting its path and is certain there will be no impact. its closest approach expected to be near indonesia at 2:24 p.m. eastern on friday. images have already been captured on high-powered telescopes in australia. >> you won't be able to see it with the naked eye. with research and a decent telescope, you have a shot but your best bet may be to do what a lot of people around here will be doing, monitoring the nasa feed online. as it gets closer, nasa's powerful gold stone deep space communications complex will be taking radar imagery, research that could help scientists avoid disaster in the future. back in 1908, a smaller meteor hit in a remote region of siberia, destroying the landscape for hundreds of miles. and scientists blame the dinosaur's demise on a massive astroid. >> t
planet. it happened in the past hour, nasa said the meteorite in russia had nothing to do with the asteroid, about the size of half a football field. joining me, astronomer david dundee. the question is, as i have just answered, there was nothing to do with the two of them one is more common than the other. meteorites in the sky of russia coming down. how rare is that? >> well, meteorite impacts happen all the time. the earth picks up tons of debris every day but it's usually in the form of dust and smaller objects. one the size of what we saw in russia is a once in a decade thing. last time this happened was about ten years ago, over in the pakistan, india region of the world. but the two objects are totally unrelated and one of the other big things to consider is that you're separating the two events by 14 hours. remember, the earth is hurling around the sun at 19 miles per second so we're in a different neighborhood than weapon the meet -- when the meteor came in in russia. >> that's interesting. everything's moving at once. how fast was this thing going? >> the top sea
as a large asteroid makes it very close trip pass the art. these are nasa radar images and illustrations of * d a 14. the 150 m diameter rocks is going to pass so close to earth, that it will be even closer than some satellites! nasa says that it will be the best opportunity " never " to monitor a near miss by an object so large, and learn more about astroid past predictions. no need to worry, though, nasa scientists say that it will definitely not hit the globe. astronomers say and ask for this size would cause an expulsion equivalent to 82 and a half megaton bomb. we will be right back. >> here are the afternoon highs. is going to be a nice day. it will be 69 degrees impala alto. fairfield will be popping out at 70 degrees. bridgman will be at 67 degrees. it will be 71 degrees for santa rosa. your kron 47 day around the bay highlights that warmer weather will be for the weekend and we may see some light rain as we head into next tuesday and wednesday. >> we're not tracking any hot spots but here is your bridge to check. the drive times are still from 18 to 20 minutes. the san mateo bri
-- these are not just a few disgruntled protesters. the lead nasa global warming scientist has announced it's game over for the climate if we approve the keystone pipe will be. gabe was arrested protesting the pipeline. he is nasa's lead scientist endorsed a book calling the world for ridding itself of industrialization by turning off the greenhouse gas machine. this man i interviewed about ecoterror and the pipeline, his inspiration to stop the pipeline. so, the leaders at nasa -- i call them nasa's resident ex-con -- is inspiring these people to point acts of ecoer toism, and they're against all forms of energy, which doesn't make send. if we're getting oil from democracy in canada, that's caught ethical oil, as opposed to getting from nye jeer -- nye nigeria or the middle east. the. >> neil: what is scary, the ends justify the means and if push came to shove and it meant tearing the thing down or doing god know's what, without this oil, it's a better world for us? that is crazy. >> yes, it's not about not in my backyard so much as they're worried about the extra co2 that would be emited in the atmo
. bill: according to nasa, 100 tons of meet toors of gravel and dust hit the atmosphere and the earth every single day. the smaller strikes what we saw in russia happen ten times a year. that's new. scientists believe a strike by a meteor six miles across may have been responsible for extinction of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. in case you're wondering on a friday have something to do over the weekend you mentioned the asteroid talking about past several days. they say there is no connection between that and this meteor. we'll talk to scientists throughout the morning. heather: a lot of experts. bill: meantime, six minutes past, the nightmare is finally over. what a slow crawl this was. thousands of passengers cheering the end of a cruise ship horror scene. touching land and kissing it like the pope. the carnival cruise triumph docking last night in mobile after putting what passengers through what they call disgusting conditions. now they say they are just happy to be home. who can blame them. >> i feel great to be off the ship and just being on land and, i get to see my family
'm not a professor but -- >> i'm not actually an expert, so it's okay. how do we miss that? >> the thing is, nasa really is tracking thousands of objects that are objects of interest near earth asteroids. this thing was small and frankly the direction it was coming from was towards the sun. so we didn't see it. sometimes we spot things just days before they pass by. and some things we track for years in advance. >> so this we just barely -- or unfairly, we missed. we could miss other stuff. should we pour money into equipment or technology that would see more of that stuff, however small? i'm all for putting money into nasa. it's half a percent of our budget. only a small fraction of that goes towards this, monitoring the earth's asteroids. it might be important in the long run. but like i said, they do track some things for years. there's many things that we're aware of. but the solar system is not eight planets, there are millions of objects making up the solar system. >> you say you're not a professor, you come off as a very good one. thank you very much. i appreciate it. >> thanks. >> neil: i
is a brilliant university of maryland graduate engineering student with ties to nasa. but he was also suffering from a mental illness that turned deadly. >> the whole thing -- >> shocked, neighboring students said bullets went through an suv window and into a neighborhood home. >> i guess -- >> find the trigger of a semihandgun was dayvon green. a 23-year-old university of maryland graduate engineering student and self-described brainiac, seen on a nasa website, where he was working on engineering. >> one of his roommates woke up to the flames. >> a bizarre night was lit fires all around the house which lured these roommates outside. green inexplicably pulled his gun from his waistband, shot one roommate to death and shot another. green ran in the backyard and shot hems. julie parker speaks to prince georges police. >> next to the gunman's body, a handgun was found. they also discovered a bag of weapons to include a baseball bat, a machete, a fully loaded semi-automatic handgun and ammunition. the shooter had been suffering from a mental illness. >> university president, wahl wallace l
that will pass closer than some satellites to the earth. nasa says it is will be the best opportunity ever to witness a near miss but bright sunlight will keep the golden state from seeing it. nasa says there is no need to worry. it will definitely not hit earth. that's good to know. >> 150 meters, that would put a hole in the earth. >> too bad we can't see it. it would be a great show, right, elizabeth. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> it is. what were you talking about? [ laughter ] >> an asteroid! >> oh, okay. got cla. i have been thinking about fog. i have a foggy brain. >>> it's all over the bay area this morning. you can see it in spots towards the bay bridge toll plaza. we were actually just getting word of an accident now. unfortunately it's on the skyway section sounds like it's on the other side of the bridge westbound 80 by the 101 connector so heads up. we don't have major details now but it sounds like possibly lanes blocked. they also turned on the metering lights. that's why we are starting to see delays in the cash and fastrak lanes and we
that happens to wander into its pass although nasa has calculated it out and we don't think that's going to happen. >> reporter: tonight on the streets of oakland some sky watchers knew about the asteroid. while scientists are ruled out a collision this time, they're asking for more funding to catalog those objects. >> let's say there was one heading to the earth that we knew about and there was going to be an impact. we want as much time as possible to prepare for that event. >> reporter: despite how close the asteroid will pass it will not be visible to the unaided eye. this observation deck will be ohm from #: -- 7:00 to 10:00 to see that asteroid. christien kafton, ktvu news. >>> some people were injured during a collision. one car was trying to pass another and cross the center line. they say the driver hit another vehicle coming in the opposite direction. police say none of the injuries were serious and they do not believe that alcohol played a hole in -- played a role in the crash. >>> this video shows an armed robbery at a jewelry store in san francisco on west portal avenue. po

. >> and if that's not enough, today 130,000-ton astroid had a close encounter with the earth. here's how the n.a.s.a. folks explained what could happen. >> astroid 2012da14 is an object about half the size. a football field in diameter that is going to pass very close to the earth on february 15th. coming from the south to the north it gets to within 17,200 miles of the earth's surface and will pass the interior to the gps satellites, but there's no chance of the as street hitting the earth and very little chance it will hit a satellite. >> they were right. they say this was the closest fly-by ever of a space rock of this size. and it was traveling at more than 17,000 miles an hour. that's it for us tonight. thank for watching. i'm juan williams in for bill o'reilly. please remember, the spin comes here because we are looking out for you.
're a rocket scientist doesn't mean that you can't rock a hot haircut. we're going to introduce you to nasa's mohawk man. ue psoriasis. i decided enough is enough. ♪ [ spa lady ] i started enbrel. it's clinically proven to provide clearer skin. [ rv guy ] enbrel may not work for everyone -- and may not clear you completely, but for many, it gets skin clearer fast, within 2 months, and keeps it clearer through 6 months. [ male announcer ] enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events, including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. if you've
anywhere. >> reporter: the yearly catch is shipped to nasa's johnson space center. here in the non-december crypt building number 31... >> this is the air shower. reporter: ... where you have to suit up to protect the meteorites from contamination. the precious cargo is unpacked and catalogued under the watchful eye of curator kevin rider. >> they're frozen from the time they're collected and returned all the way along the legs of the journey to get to houston. >> reporter: each sample is carefully examined and given a name based on where it was found. so we get to see a martian meteorite. >> this sample is elephant morain 79001. it's a basaltic rock from mars. >> reporter: it was studying a martian meteorite found in antarctica that led scientists to the discovery that there was once water on mars. and those these ugly ducklings may all look similar to the naked eye each meteorite has different chemical and mineral content. under a polarizing microscope, there is beautiful... they're as beautiful as stained glass windows for it's what they may some day tell us that really matters.
.s.-based telescopes to get a good look. but in australia some imagery is available and coming in thanks to nasa. as for a direct hit, well, astronomers worldwide are watching, they're excited but not worried. this asteroid's about half a football field long or roughly the size of a 12-story building like this. that certainly is big enough to wipe out a city, but scientists say at least today that is not going to happen. the real threat, though small, is to communications satellites like the ones we at fox news use. the geosynchronous plane is 22,000 miles around the earth, and da14 penetrates at 1:24 eastern, just a little more than an hour from now, coming 17,000 miles from earth, exiting at 3:24. satellite companies have been warned. they do not expect any satellite will actually be hit though. with about a million asteroids and meteors flying around earth's orbit, astronomers and telescopes around the planet are constantly looking up. >> we've seen and trackedded about 9,000 of them right now, and about a thousand of them are potentially hazardous. so we look at those carefully, and it turns
has been investigating nasa for the past four years. the congressmen say the u.s. attorney's office in northern californ wants to bring criminal charges, but has been blocked by the justice department. the u.s. attorney's office denies that claim. >>> several people are hurt this morning after a police chase ends with a shooting in san francisco. police say a stolen town car tried to get away from officers near the intersection of eddy and jones streets. after a short chase t car swerved on to the sidewalk to avoid spike strips. one officer shot at the car which kept going before crashing into a taxi and two other cars. the suspect is now under arrest, four other people are hurt. >>> we'll take a look at the forecast. >>> 9:28. welcome back. taking a live look at the hills in sunol. beautiful clear sky overhead. we need the rain to keep these hills green and it's on the way. but not before we get to 80 in some places. 45 degrees in san jose, 44 in gilroy. look at santa rosa, they're still at 35 degrees because we had a stubborn pocket of fog that hung out there all day. it's our tur
